The Australia One project will receive an international boost next month when The Salvation Army’s Chief of the Staff and World Secretary for Women's Ministries, Commissioners Brian and Rosalie Peddle visit Melbourne and Sydney to meet with Salvationists, officers and senior leadership.

Commissioner Brian made his first visit to Australia 18 months ago when he officially announced the Australia One project.

“It is timely for the Peddles to visit as we find ourselves half-way through the journey to a single Australia Territory,” said National Commander Commissioner Floyd Tidd.

The Peddles’ visit to Australia will include officers councils in Melbourne and Sydney. They will also participate in a public meeting in Melbourne on Friday October 13 and Sunday meetings in Sydney at Auburn and Hurstville Corps on October 15.

“One of the hopes for this visit of the Chief of the Staff and World Secretary for Women's Ministries, is the continued awareness and growing commitment to the partnership we share as an International Movement,” said Commissioner Tidd. “IHQ and the international Army community have been supportive and encouraging of the Australia One process.  The exposure of officers, soldiers, employees and volunteers to the persons and message of the Peddles through the public gatherings provides an opportunity to be reminded of our international partnership and what Australia brings to the International Army as well.”

The Peddles will spend their remaining days in Australia with senior leadership (cabinet members and divisional leaders) at The Collaroy Centre from October 16 - 19.

“This group will be gathering for prayer and Bible Study and to work together through the next steps in the Australia One program,” said Commissioner Tidd.

The couple is the second-highest ranking officers in the worldwide Army, having served alongside General Andre Cox and World President for Women’s Ministries Sylvia Cox since November 2015.

While it will be a return “Down Under” for the couple, who spent two years as Territorial leaders in the New Zealand and Fiji Territory, it will be Commissioner Rosalie’s first visit to Australia.

Commissioner Tidd said that they will ensure she has a “true Aussie experience” during their visit.
